    Fantastic photographer - highly recommend

    My wife and I recently had Kim photograph our wedding in Banff. She was quick to reply to all of our emails, accommodated having a video chat before meeting in person, and was excellent in every way throughout our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day. We have so many beautiful photos, it's hard to narrow them down for our album! Being a same-sex couple, it was important to us to have a photographer with whom we felt relaxed and comfortable. Kim has the perfect personality for this job. She was so easy to be around, fit in seamlessly to our wedding day, and captured all of the important moments for us.

    Kim Payant Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for this amazing review! I had the best time photographing your engagement session in Canmore and wedding day at the Fairmont Banff Springs! I'm so happy to hear you had a great time working with me. I wish you all the best!

    Professional

    I hired Kim for my engagement shoots in Lake Louise and I could not have asked for a better photographer. The pictures came out better than I expected. Also she sent the pictures much earlier than I had expected. I highly recommend her!

    Thank you so much for your great review! I had a wonderful time photographing your proposal at Lake Louise!

    Kim was amazing for our freezing cold wedding day!

    We booked Kim for our December wedding. She was great. She had lots of suggestions on photo/ceremony locations and time scheduling. We were supposed to have an outdoor wedding, but it ended up being -30, so switched to an indoor ceremony last minute. We still got outdoor couple photos in the blistering cold, which turned out amazing. Kim drove us around to all the spots and we warmed up in her vehicle in between locations. She was so knowledgeable and told us where to stand, where to put our hands, faces etc. We had a small intimate wedding and booked 5 hours of photography which covered some getting ready photos, the ceremony, couple/family photos and some cocktail/dinner photos. I would definitely recommend Kim!

    Kim Payant Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the great review and for braving the -30C temperature! I'm so happy that we were able to get outside for a few photos and get great results in the cold! You guys were great to work with and happy to hear you love the photos! Thanks again and I wish you all the best!

    Kim is Amazing!!!

    My husband and I decided to elope at Emerald Lake Lodge without ever seeing the location. I contacted Kim to see if she was available, and she was! The photos she had on her site were amazing, and her reviews were outstanding. We booked a three hour session for December 16, 2022. Kim not only showed up on time, but ready to go and well prepared for the weather (-9C/16F and snowing all day). She was very professional and knew exactly what she was doing, which made our day that much more amazing! She was able to capture all the photos we were looking for and went with the flow when we wanted to add different locations. She also knew exactly how to bustle my dress which came in handy! Kim sent us the previews that night, and the final photos by mid-February, as promised. We were able to download all of our photos easily from the site and any photos we wanted in a higher resolution for larger prints Kim was able to send to us. Kim also put together our wedding album, which she did an amazing job and was flexible with all the changes we wanted to make. I cannot thank her enough for the absolutely stunning work she did for our elopement! Kim is very talented and delivers work as promised. I highly suggest booking Kim, you will not regret it!!!

    A & M wedding @ Banff

    We are more than happy to have Kim as our wedding photographer. Every capture was brilliant and makes us rekindle the moment perfectly. Not only that, she was at the same to so professional and courteous and caring, always checks on us during the event. She is well ahead of her estimated date of release of all the pictures. She made our wedding even more magical. Thank you so much Kim.

    Above and Beyond

    Kim was incredible to work with - even our guests commented on how great she was! From getting down on her hands and knees to help me get a pin out of the hem of my dress to learning the names of everyone in our family to managing the would-be photographers in our family, she made our day run so smoothly. The photos are beautiful and captured some moments we'll treasure forever.

    Super Impressed!

    Kim was absolutely amazing to work with!
    Since we are not from the area we let Kim choose all the locations and she definitely did not disappoint!!
    She is super friendly and organized, we could have not picked anyone better to capture our wedding day. The pictures are absolutely stunning!
